Thumbs up Hacking the infotainment

Does hacking/jailbreaking the infotainment void my car warranty?
I can’t believe that the base model doesn’t have a customizable welcomeing screen.
Also feel free to post your suggestion/insight here about hacking the infotainment.

I assume modding the infotainment system counts as improper adjustments or repairs.

This is from Toyota:
Quote:
This warranty does not cover damage or failures resulting directly or
indirectly from any of the following:
• Fire, accident or theft
• Abuse or negligence
• Misuse – for example, racing & competitive events, off-roading or
overloading
Improper adjustments or repairs
• Modification, alteration or tampering, disconnection, including
installation of non-Toyota Accessories
• Repairs and adjustments caused by improper maintenance, lack of
required maintenance and/or the use of fluids, fuel, oil or lubricants
other than those recommended in your Owner’s Manual
• Installation of non-Toyota Parts

General rule of thumb is that as long as you can undo it and leave no evidence then its a go. However these days with how these systems are built often logs are kept of what was going on, those logs might only be viewable by service centers so its a risky game.

I've never heard of Toyota's infotainment systems being hacked. What except customizable welcoming screen can you modify with a jailbreak? I might consider hacking it too.

if only we can get a copy of the firmware from Pioneer, that would be helpful. We can backdoor it and add new features.

This system is widely used in different Toyota vehicles. Some may want to check other forums ...
